“Hollywood, I don’t call them the elites, I think the elites are people they go after in many cases,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday morning. “But Hollywood is really terrible. You talk about racist, Hollywood is really racist. What they’re doing with the kind of movies they’re putting out, it’s actually very dangerous for our country.”
Speaking of “movies that are very dangerous for our country,” Universal has cancelled “The Hunt” release following the mass shootings in Ohio and Texas. The film, which the company has called a “satirical social thriller,” is about a group of globalist elites who pay large amounts of money to hunt people for sport. Their game goes left when the hunted become the hunters. The film is a remixed version of the 1994 film “Surviving the Game” starring Ice-T.
It is unclear if “The Hunt” will be released at a later date, or as part of Universal’s upcoming streaming service or if it will remain shelved indefinitely, CNBC reports.

Meanwhile, Trump also noted on Friday of the Hollywood system: “We have now, in a little while, all of the heads of the biggest companies coming in, and we’re gonna talk to them. They treat conservatives, Republicans, totally different than they treat others. And they can’t do that.”
Over the weekend, the president stirred up even more controversy when he retweeted a conspiracy theory that Bill Clinton orchestrated a prison hit on Jeffery Epstein.
“This is another example of our President using this position of public trust to attack his political enemies with unfounded conspiracy theories,” Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” USA Today reports.
Presidential candidate Cory Booker told CNN that Trump is “whipping people up into anger and worse” and added that “this is a very dangerous president that we have right now.”
There is no evidence connecting Clinton to Epstein’s alleged death Saturday by suicide, yet Trump on Saturday night re-tweeted the comments of Twitter user Terrence K. Williams: “Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen #JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! RT if you’re not Surprised,” Williams said in a clip that has now gone viral.
